BEFORE YOU LEAVE
What to do in a blizzard?
A blizzard is a sudden snow and wind storm causing snow to be blown around and reducing visibility. This phenomenon is common in high altitude areas where the vegetation is rarer and the mountains more exposed.
If you get caught in a blizzard or in blowing snow, here are a few tips to help you:
What to do if you are injured and cannot move?
In any case, never leave the signaled areas.
What to do if you are lost?
In any case, it is preferable to wait for help rather than spending your energy going around in circles in the woods.
A short loop on each side of the Milieu river with a cabin midway, for a rest stop.
With its hilly terrain and short turns, this trail is made for more technical skiers. A beautiful loop set amidst a forest of yellow birch, sugar maple and fir.
A complete loop of the Milieu valley, from one side to the other.
Why not enjoy it a little longer and discover the two main valleys of the park?
Climb all the way to the Camp de base and take in the view of the Milieu valley and the surrounding mountains. Enjoy your lunch and a hot drink inside, as the Camp de base is open to skiers during the day, before gliding your way down to the visitor center.
Enjoy a snack (or a lunch) at the Camp de base halfway through your perfect day of skiing!
Add 4 km to your ascent to the Camp de base and you’ll be rewarded with amazing views at the Tête de la Vallée du Milieu belvedere!
The whole package for more experienced skiers!
